What’s the story?

The Soweto giants are facing somewhat of a striking department conundrum, with both Leonardo Castro and Nurkovic set for lengthy spells on the sidelines owing to injury.  

It was recently revealed that the Serbian would face up to two months out after undergoing knee surgery at the Rosebank Clinic in Johannesburg last week.

 

Striker Problems

The task will now be for coach Stuart Baxter to make do with the attacking options at his disposal with the likes of Lazarous Kambole and Lebogang Manyama said to be options for the Amakhosi mentor upfront.

Nonetheless, Nurkovic will no doubt be missed in attack, with his early exploits as a Chiefs player still remembered by many supporters today. For many foreign stars, adjusting to the pace of the PSL can prove to be a mammoth task however, Nurkovic took to South African football like a duck to water.

Kokota Piano

In the 2019/20 campaign, the robust striker managed to feature regularly for Amakhosi and managed to score 14 goals while assisting his teammates on six occasions.

As a result of his fine form at the time, an Amapiano track was made in his honour, giving birth to his Mzansi nickname, ‘Kokota’ for his love for the popular genre.

Created by a group called Gboys, Chiefs fans were buzzing to the track in early 2020, as the song went viral on social media.
